That Agile has tempted me. A lot.

The other thing I would look for is a Squier CV Tele. You might find a used one in your price range. Those are better Teles than they have a right to be.

I think Reverend Mikey has one he'd part with.

I noticed that Rondo has a few of the SX Teles on sale now. And those have a headstock more like the old Fernandes Strats of the '90s. I always get tempted by those when they are marked down because they make excellent mod platforms.

I've got a set of GFS Lil' Killer pickups from my Agile Tele that are waiting patiently for a new home.

I probably should sell those to keep me from buying another guitar.

""You also can't go wrong with a Squier Affinity.""

I have both a Squier Affinity strat and tele. Leftee is right, and they sell for $199.

I like the looks of the Affinity Tele except for the pale neck. Maybe I could use some brown shoe polish.

"Maybe I could use some brown shoe polish."

Or "baptize" it with some communion juice...

Yes. Didn't I write back?

I thought I did. Maybe that was a dream. I'll get back to you this weekend. :-)

Life is crazy busy and sometimes I set out to do something and I get distracted.

Welp, I found a gem! I just bought a Michael Kelly Patriot Custom for $225.

Just like this one...

That looks like a peach of a guitar. The Kellys are well made and the components they use are very good for their market segment.

That control layout (two pups, one vol knob, one tone knob, and a switch) is my favorite setup. I have a few PRS Custom 22s with the same format.

It also has the push-pull for coil-tapping.

Nice looking guitar. Without the pickup surrounds, though, I think it would look better without covers (open coils). Kinda like a Wolfgang, etc.
